First topic message reminder :

Saga: Prologue
Level: All (Recommended Levels: None)
Location: Medius (J5)

The one constant in this world, is change. Humans both strive towards it and fight against it. An ever spiralling cause of chaos and disorder that in the end leaves everything warped, distorted. Changed beyond recognition forever. Life. Death. All but opposite sides of the one coin. Different pages. But the same book. To humans this change is like the encroaching advance of thorns, vines and weeds within a garden. An approaching wildness that threatens to extinguish the life and order already set in place. But, nothing can ever remain the same. Sometimes within these thrones, you’ll see glimpses of virtue. Courage. Drive them back! . Loyalty. I’ll stand by you, till the death, as promised. Love. It was always you that I loved, and I want to be here with you at the end. Flowers, beauty among the wildness. But in the end when it advances too far, as part of this disorder. They too must be extinguished. But even driven back, beaten destroyed. Fragments remain. Pages of a book. Life and death. Separated. Virtue once again begins to seed. But within it, disorder flourishes.

For twenty years the people of this world have known what could be considered an age of relative peace. It has only been a short time since the world was birthed from the abortion of the old. And yet this time was enough to spawn a new generation of heroes, adventurers. Potters that would mold the future of the world and its realms. This was however too enough time for the great divide to form itself between the light and the darkness. On the side of the light. There was the beautiful queen of Mare Maris, protecting her subjects and those who would flock to her banner. In realm of Terra she represented a new hope for the world after the intial chaos that had followed the dawn. And on the side of darkness. The enigmatic prophet. Rumours, tales of nightmarish hordes of Onikonjou that gathered in the depths of the southern regions, beasts within the forests, Who hungered for flesh. And of their leader. One who had seen a glimpse of what had came before. And sought to use this insight into the past. To shape the future. Albiet in his own image. Yet. There were also others who sought power. And this the story of one such person. A human, pitted against gods in a struggle for supremacy. Yet when faced with such odds. It is seldom one remains on the path of morality.

The Dark King was no new born to this world. Like others he had awakened after the dawn. And had been part of that great confusion that followed. Man against man, man against beast. Beast against beast. Spirit against all. Those days of survival were long and harsh. And would do well to shape what he would become. He was stronger than the others, thus in this strength he found those who were willing to follow him. And using those followers. He crushed opposition and set himself up as the sole dictorial ruler of the region he now dubbed " The Core". Ruthless, cruel even. The Dark King believed that his strength gave him the right to rule. But as with all things in chaos. Change is constant. And the Dark Kings strength began to wane as the years went on. His subjects were not blind to this. And with greedy eyes, sew rebellion in his ranks. There was an uprising. Albiet a brief one. During which the tyrant king of The Core, would become the " Dark King of the Core". There are many rumours surrounding just what changed about him. Some say that he truely was never mortal at all. Some say that he sold his soul to a demon. As with all things the truth often belongs beyond that. Hidden among the lies. Regardless of how it happened, in the midst of the rebellion the Dark King emerged reborn, with a new power over the darkness and the creatures who dwealt within it. An army of numberless minions who through claw and fang put down the rebels.

Word of the Dark King and his exploits rarely escapes his lands. Those who speak of those creatures of nightmare that stalk his kingdom as his eyes and ears. Are often dismissed as mad. Assuming they had returned at all. Within his Kingdom. He sat upon his throne of skull and bone. Casting his eyes out into the world. And as his vision grew broader. So did his ambitions. Word reached to him about the Prophet. Capturing and torturing one of his minions to reveal the secret of the Prophets vision. A fragment of power. A remnant from the old world. And so the Dark King knew what he needed. What he wanted. Once again, he cast out his human soldiers into the world, spies and scouts to infiltrate the civilisations out there in an attempt to find one of these fragments. And after his long search, the labour has begun to bear fruit. One of his scouts had found something. But in a brief flash of light, the eyes of the Dark King had been blinded to his fate. Now for the first time, the forces of this King are on the move to claim the fragment of power.



Summary
At first it was just the ramblings of a few crazy men and women.Dismissed as utter nonsense. And then. The dark cloud in the west began to move. Hunters who left their houses in the morn to hunt for game. Did not return. And for once, the wilderness drew quiet. Then reports began to get more detailed. And could no longer be dismissed as the ramblings of those touched by demon kind. A force of darkness was on the move. And was headed directly for the [Central Passage, J5]. The dark cloud in the distance drawers nearer. And undoubtably without resistance. Whatever horrors travel with it are likely to raze anything in the surrounding areas in their path. Villages. Towns. A call has gone out for aid in defending the populated areas of this land from whatever is to come. Mercenaries. Adventurers. Do gooders. All are prayed for in this dark time.

Begin!

At the central passage there are some men chopping down trees, a few of them look like commoners. Villagers who have just grabbed the nearest tool they have to hand. By the looks of things though they were begining to set up fortifications in the slim hope of stopping the advancing horde. However if the rumours are to be believed about what is to decend upon them. Then they will be obliterated without help. A man in the middle of the group however looks the most organised. He is wearing what appears to be a robe of some kind. And may be a priest. Or even a mage. Whatever he is, the man seems to be the one leading this rag tag group of defenders. His eyes scoured over a map laid upon a table, hands on either side. Eyes moving up every now and again to bark orders at someone. As soon as he sees you. For the briefest moment, there is the flicker of a smile ( or was it a grin?).

" Excellent, I thought our call for aid had gone unheeded. I assembled these men in the hopes that we may drive back, or at least divert whatever dark force draws near. I think we do have some time before it is upon us. So I am preparing what I can using what we have....your help in these things would be welcome indeed". .

Fortifying the Land
Building fortifications will give you a better chance in the upcoming battle. They are however. Optional.

Barricading: Wooden spiked baracades that whilst provide minimal protection, may give that slight edge in battle required. [ Adds +1 to Ranged Units in Army, additional + 1 for each increase in size.]
Pitfalls: Placing pitfalls along the expected route of the dark force may reduce enemy unit numbers...[ Chance of Reducing enemy units, number depends on roll and size]
Spike Trenches: The placement of trenches could provide a significant reduction in the speed of the enemy advance. [ Speed reduction determined by roll]
Medical Post: A dry area with gathered herbal mixes to treat wounds. [ Provides a +20hp/stamina recovery use to the person who built it ONCE during battle , only one can be built per member]
Elemental Circle: The elder/priest/mage has provided a scroll which details a method in which to build a magical circle in which an element can be enfused. Crafting one of these will generate an effect based on the magical package used to infuse the circle with power. Effect revealed when used]

Sizing: Fortification sizes, Small ( 500 words to complete), Medium ( 1000 words to complete) and Large ( 1500 words to complete). Increasing the sizes of the fortifications increases their effects. Building one fortification, regardless of size takes up one turn. Increasing the size of the fortification will increase its effects once over. Ex) Large Medical Post will heal +60hp/Sta once.

Timing: 1 fortifcation built = one turn regardless of size. When I post, that entire turn however is considered over, and if you missed a chance to build a fortification in that turn. You do not get it back.

::::Note:::::
Those with troops, and bringing troops. List the numbers brought to the battle with your posts.

Unfortunately, the withered old fart managed to outspeed Iskren through some vile sorcery, or so he assumed. Vile sorcery always seemed to accompany these weird types. Death will consume all. Really? That's generally how things went in nature, after all. Things were born, they lived, they made new things, then they died. Of course death would consume them. What was he talking about?

The commoners that had been behind and all about the two men decided that they should probably attack or something, and went at the Elder's shield for all that they were worth (Attempted to break Elder's shield). Fortunately, Iskra had been shielded herself somewhat by the ice and hadn't been quite hurt yet, though she could see where she might be injured if she remained in this "trap".

"I guess it will conquer you too..." he murmured, quickly growling out a chant at partial strength in the hope that it might affect the man. Hooves couldn't hold her throat, after all.

Thus, he cast a spell that he'd come to cast only infrequently since he'd arisen to power. It was a simple spell: one that turned men into goats. The urgency of the situation, however, made him cast it a little bit too fast, with only one syllable instead of the several it usually took. [Soul Vertigo, Mastered, Bind Reduced to 1]

Hopefully the several spears had penetrated the defenses of the elder at least once so she could land the attack.

Location:
> Iskren: L16 - 25 Commoners Med. shields, Med. spears (50% +1 Attack, 50% +1 Defense)
> Run: K19 and idling - 26 NS Units
> Builders: K16 (Hiding)
> HP/STA/Den: 200 (+20 per turn)/100 (-6 per turn)/3 + 3 + 1 (7)

[ EXP: 289 || +1 TEXP (1st post) ]

Iskrans dodge attempt would have failed. The Dark King was far too quick. Which was surprising considering his size, the block attempt from the Matriarch would barely be even be in its beginings before the hand clasped around her throat. [ Conflict information:Melee range MOV: Strong vs Supreme = 6/50 =10%x2= 24% chance Block Fails. Bonus fails. Reasoning. Two actions vs 1, TDK's MOV is x10 faster than Iskran's, and 5X faster than her Dex. Chant fails due to interupt.] With his immense strength the Dark King lifts Iskran above the ground, crushing his/her throat as he did so. [ Damage = Destructive + 3= BRK DMG 2, 8, Density Broken. Damage dealt. 5DMG Iskran]. The bum rush charge from Jyn's shadow clone takes The Dark King in the back pushing him forward. This combined with the onrush of spears from Iskra's followers causes TDK to drop Iskran [ Bind Broken].

In one movement The Dark King's wings fade into dust, along with the dark aura surrounding him. The creepers reapppear now from the darkness that had made this up. The Dark King angrily grabs one of the spears imbedded in his chest and yanks it out. Lifting the unfortunate individual holding it and throwing him into the mass of creepers now surrounding the Command Centre. Suffice to say. He didn't make it. [ Creepers have re-emerged @ locations:I15,J15, I18,J18]. The breaths and noises of the dark king however as he made his movements suggested that this was more resistance than he was used to. Almost as if he was distracted by something else. Impaitence clutching at him.

Somewhere in the North Western Forest

....Where is he?
........I don't know, the thing flashed and we lost contact with him...
...Have you found a way out yet?
...................The maps. They're all wrong....no matter where I go I always end up right back here....this thing...I think it may have trapped us
I'm going to try something. Just keep quiet

Back in Medius.
Something was begining to stirr. Those with spiritual senses would be able to detect it. It was not of the Dark King. But at the same time, it didn't feel particularly " good " either.

Noah was extremely pissed that this had happened to him, so pissed that he just wanted to unleash his rage on everything. For the Kami this was a new thing, having being hindered in such a significant way. The Defenders could tell that he was uncomfortable with what had just happened, and though they had not 100% relied on Noah, they saw his display of power before, hence became a little discouraged when he said he couldn't access it. There was an odd moment of Silence after Yuki had raged and asked the other figure to take Noah and go, but Noah wasn't going to allow himself to be defeated that easily. Yes he was wanting to come out of this alive, but seeing this through all the way would push his plans forwards quite a bit, and then there was Broli who he had to see to it that he came out of this alive...for Ana's sake. He looked up and took noticed of the discouraged looks in his men eyes and shook his head." Stay strong men. I'm going to see this through to the end with you all. We will come out of this victorious...asides from others safety, I have much riding on the outcome of this battle. Failure isn't an option! " and with letting that out, the men that was with him would cheer out loud, admiring all this coming from what would appear to be a little boy. Noah brought himself up and dusted himself off, holding his hand out." Blood through which is cleanse, grant me my second wind! ".

Back in Medius.

The Dark King suddenly stopped in his tracks and looked around. As if there was something that he could hear that none of you had managed to pick up. But yet. It seemed as if he couldn't quite get it either. Then you'd all be able to hear it as well. it was a high pitched whine as everything took on a rather hazed look. As if a sudden dense fog had engulfed the entire area. There was a sudden flash of white light. And then darkness. But in that darkness. There was something there. Images. Pictures. There was a great abyss that you were floating in. It seemed that you were above the heavens, in the darkness were the stars belonged. There was some kind of object there, a metal one. It shone silver and gold. A voice burned into your mind. " Purge this place". The object in the abyss began to light up. A light blue energy gathering on the tip of what appeared to be some kind of dish. And then blasting down in a single arc onto the world below. You could see the fires it caused from the abyss. More images. Demons being consumed by this clearly holy weapon's fire. The last voice you heard was a familiar one. The Dark King.

" The divine purge...this is it.....the weapon I have sought...".

With a great battle. With blood spilled. A new enemy, and a new goal. Upon awakening. It seemed this story was only just getting off to a start.
